Let me just preface this post by saying that I’m up super late, and really tired, but awake, because I ate a handful of 60% cacao chocolate chips. Uh, so, this may not be written very well, let alone, make much sense. But anyways.
Today was a pretty good day. We had a triumph here at the house. Beau went the entire day in the same pair of underwear! Woohoo! We went “cold turkey”, meaning just putting him in undies instead of pull-ups sometime last week. As many of you know, potty training is not so much training your child as training yourself to be consistent. So I guess I did a pretty good job today. We even went to the doc, and Sam’s club, and he took a nap! Tonight he’s sleeping in them. I’m not expecting him to make it through the night without and accident, but I thought it was important that he feels that we trust him. (And his sheets need to be washed anyways.) Also, apparently June is “Potty Training Awareness Month”. Go figure.
I mentioned we went to the doc, which turned out to be a pretty good experience, as far as doc appointments go. I have to say here, that I’m soooo thankful for my extended family! They are always such a great help to me. My grandmother-in-law and brother-in-law walked over to the office to meet me and pick up Drew and Selah, so I didn’t have to bring them with me to the appointment. They saved me a lot of stress and from being late! And I love my kids’ pediatrician. She’s great. Never underestimate the comfort of having a doctor you feel like you can trust. Beau is doing fabulously too. No immunizations today either. Thank the Lord!
Then I came home and met my new neighbor, who is also a stay at home mom of young children and she is so nice! I’m so excited to have somebody two doors down who’s in the same boat as I am. Yay!
Also, I’m feeling much better today after coming down with whatever Kev and Selah had, and think I should be back to myself tomorrow.
So anyways…if you made it through this rambling post, you are a devoted reader, and I thank you. If not…well, you probably aren’t reading this right now, so plllllllt! (that’s me blowing a playful raspberry at you).
